[texts]Professional audio production, editing, and mixing techniques - Dowse, Justin Michael
The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate professional and efficient music production and music mixing techniques. This is not meant to be a definitive answer to the endless approaches that can be used in music production and mixing. Instead, it is intended to aid learning in a profession where there are no black and white answers since choices in music production and mixing are highly dependent upon the engineer's preferences...

[texts]Communication algorithms for adversarial multiple access channels - Anantharamu, Lakshmi
We investigate dynamic broadcasting in multiple access channels. Packet injection and jamming are constrained by adversarial models, which determine injection rates and burstiness of traffic. We develop a number of deterministic distributed broadcast protocols and study their efficiency. The performance of protocols is measured by packet latency and queue size, as functions of the parameters of the underlying adversarial models...

[texts]Women in state legislatures : representation and the policy process - Schumacher, Kristin L.
Women have not achieved equality in regards to political representation within theUS. This exclusion weakens the quality of the political debate and destabilizes the legitimacy of our democracy. However, inroads have been made in building a more representative democracy at both the state and federal level in the US. This study extends the literature regarding gender and representation, exploring the association between descriptive representation, legislative factors, civil society contexts and t...

[texts]A machine learning approach for gene expression analysis and applications - Le, Thanh Ngoc
High-throughput microarray technology is an important and revolutionary technique used in genomics and systems biology to analyze the expression of thousands of genes simultaneously. The popular use of this technique has resulted in enormous repositories of microarray data, for example, the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO), maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). However, an effective approach to optimally exploit these datasets in support of specific biological stud...

[texts]Adjusted measures of district and school performance : a social justice study of Colorado's Latino students - Broer, Ashley J.
The reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 has increasedattention to student achievement. Specifically, the challenging demographics inColorado make attention to Colorado's Latino American students a critical issue. Colorado's population of Latino American students is now the largest and fastest growing ethnic minority group in the state. Although it is necessary to hold educators accountable for students who are not achieving, it is inappropriate to make judgments simply from r...

[texts]Tracking spatiotemporal movements of dunlin (calidris alpina articola) migration through stable isotope analysis - Doll, Andrew Charles
This thesis describes my investigations into the migratory and breeding behaviors of Dunlin (Calidris alpina arcticola) using chemical signals contained within the tissues of these long-distance migratory shorebirds. The ratios of stable isotopes (δ13C andδ15N) in the tissues of these birds serve as an intrinsic record of past dietary consumption. By studying the variation of these ratios over time and between tissues, I was able to make inferences about past behaviors.Chapter I describes how ...

[texts]A design-based approach to teaching sustainability - Walter, Kim R.
We live on a finite ecological system, yet consume as though resources are unlimited. Current environmental data suggests many in the developed world are living beyond what the earth is able to sustain. The paradigms in which we operate continue to support a path of constant consumption that continues to exacerbate this problem. Technology educators can and should play a valuable role in working with students to question these paradigms through lessons that begin to engage students toward thinki...

[texts]Shakespeare, the land law, and the individual: their emergence in Elizabethan England - Senn, Mark Albert
Through the prisms of William Shakespeare's life and work and Elizabethan land law, this thesis not only (a) suggests that the sixteenth century witnessed the simultaneous rise of the individual and the creation of the English state, but also (b) identifies the chance confluence of several forces that led to personal freedom on the one hand and a national unification on the other. Shakespeare benefited personally from the individuation and the nation-building and wrote professionally about them....

[texts]Adversaries, psychology, social movements, and world politics - Turtledove, Nina Lois
Within philosophy we fmd at least two major paradigms with which it is possible to conceptualize the nature of reality: what I call the dualistic paradigm, and the integrated paradigm. Aspects of these worldviews are evidenced in the way we "deal" with adversaries, both on a psychological level and in our actions in the world. I argue that not only do these paradigms exist in philosophy and in the-actions of individuals, but they can be discerned in the events of history as well...

[texts]Recognize me: embodied recognition and the dilemma of abortion - Royer, Bridgett Christine
Because abortion was justified primarily as an issue of privacy contingent upon the trimester framework of pregnancy in the landmark case Roe v. Wade, it has been left vulnerable to radical revision, which has put the right itself in question. Though the privacy rationale has a place in the abortion argument, it is insufficient to justify the right to abortion in multiple ways. First, it does not acknowledge prior inequality in the private, nor the social factors that limit the right to privacy...

Very Low Frequency (VLF 3-30 kHz) receivers are used to monitor the amplitude and phase of signals from powerful naval VLF communication transmitters. Since the VLF transmitter signals propagate in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide, they provide a method for remotely sensing ionospheric density changes. The effect of powerful natural oceanic lighting discharges on the ionosphere are investigated using VLF remote sensing and the Global Lighting Detection Network (GLD360)...

[texts]Modeling the Flow of PCL Fluid Due to the Movement of Lung Cilia - Chamsri, Kannanut
Cilia in the human lungs are moving hairs that aid in the movement of mucus. The layer that contains the cilia is called the periciliary layer, PCL, and the liquid in that layer the PCL fluid. We consider the PCL fluid as an incompressible viscous fluid, and we consider the cilia as a periodic array of cylinders that rotate about their base with height varying as a function of the angle. We seek a three-dimensional mathematical model of the PCL fluid slowly flowing due to the movement of the cil...

Due to the physical properties of electronic components, DC offset will occur to some extent in all audio recordings. DC offset is the effect of direct current on an audio recording, and causes the audio signal to no longer oscillate around the absolute zero quantization level. The mean amplitude of a recording is calculated to determine the global amount of DC offset. Measuring the offset, its change over time, and its standard deviation can be used during forensic examination to aid in determi...
